The FreeBSD Project dedicates this release to the memories of Jean-Marc Zucconi (jmz@) and John Birrell (jb@) who passed away in May and November of 2009 respectively. Jean-Marc and John were both FreeBSD committers since the mid-1990s and made extensive contributions to the operating system. They will be missed.
